DEF-5000 Rock Deformation Device


The GCTS DEF-5000 Rock Deformation Device accurately measures axial and lateral strain directly on the specimen. It is engineered to be low weight and sturdy to provide ease and precision when testing.

 

  • Available sizes for specimen diameter from 25 mm to 150 mm (optional sizes available).
  • Measures axial and lateral strain directly on the test specimen.
  • Two axial sensors & one circumferential sensor.
  • Uses LVDT’s for ease of operation.
  • Can be used for uniaxial testing or within a triaxial cell.
  • Very easy to set up and use.

The GCTS Rock Deformation Device measures axial and lateral strain directly on the specimen providing accurate results. The device consists of an upper and lower support ring machined with a low weight, high strength design. The GCTS Rock Deformation Device is available in standard sizes and also in custom sizes.

 

This device can be used within our high-pressure triaxial cell and also used for elevated or cold temperature testing. Elastic constants such as Young’s modulus and Poisson’s ratio can be determined as well as inelastic strains that occur after sample failure (post failure analysis).

 

Direct servo control of axial or radial strains can be performed with this device.
